In this clip from www.artistshousemusic.org – Jeffrey Brabec, Vice President of Business Affairs for the Chrysalis Music Group, talks about two types of publishing deals. The first is the writer deal. A writer agrees to deliver a certain number of songs. The second is the hip-hop and rock deal. Brabec points out that hip-hop and rock deals are structured the same. However, hip-hop and rock deals do have a significant distinction. Rock and roll has very little sampling, while hip-hop has a lot. Brabec explains that samples must be cleared prior to the payment of an advance. Also, hip-hop deals are more expensive.
